Subject: VERY GOOD WALLACE REID PERFORMANCE!
WALLACE REID WAS SO GOOD IN THIS MOVIE THAT IT SADDENS ME THAT HE DIED SOON AFTERWARD AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE! THE MOVIE WAS ABOUT CAR RACING, AND MOVED AT A FAST PACE. THE SUPPORTING CAST WAS GOOD, BUT I WOULD MOSTLY RECOMMEND IT FOR WALLACE REID'S PERFORMANCE!

Subject: Fun movie
Generally speaking, silent movies bore me, but I enjoyed watching this one. The story is simple but clever. The Bear smokes quite a lot of cigars, and the hero's name is Toodles. Lots here to make one think about how times have changed-- and how they have not.
